Per Scream-Trilogy.net comes word that SCREAM 4's recent release in Japan (November 5th) proved to be a stinker of an opening. Here are the details.
According to Box Office Mojo, Scream 4 in Japan has not been successful and has tanked there. We were all waiting eagerly to see if Scream 4 would rack up enough money to reach $100 Million Worldwide in Japan but it turned out it hasn’t even made the top 17. Is that bad news? Not necessarily. Is it good news? Not necessarily. It doesn’t really affect us anymore as overseas already did decent in saving the movie and as previously posted, the Weinsteins are already working on a Scream 5 Storyline.
It would be amazing if it did hit $100M Worldwide, but reaching $97M Worldwide is great condering it was a 10 year gap and also there was lack of adverting for the film.
